70 years ago UNICEF was established (December 11, 1946) to help children destroyed by World War II.
From 1949 to the end of the 1960′ s, UNICEF helped and supported children in Greece by offering medicines, educational materials, pasteurized milk, etc.
Today, with children in Greece of the crisis, UNICEF continues to support and protect the rights of children in our country.
The Map of the Rights of the Child states:
